Dr. Dan Kennedy, a Washington High School graduate from Cherokee, recently graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport. He starts seeing patients on Monday, June 26, working regular business hours. Kennedy Chiropractic is located on South 2nd Street in Cherokee.
Kennedy always knew he wanted to go into chiropractic having grown up around his parent's practice. He has seen how patients positively respond to chiropractic care. He also knew he wanted to return to Cherokee, opting for the small town atmosphere over a larger city. Most importantly he wants to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle through chiropractic care.
Being an athlete and enjoying outdoor sports, Kennedy has found first hand, how much chiropractic care can help others. It helps with the healing time of injuries, as well as neck and low back pain, head aches, and tingling of the hands just to name a few. If a person has any questions on how the staff at Kennedy Chiropractic can help their condition give them a call.
Kennedy isn't the only sibling in his family to go into chiropractic care. He has two older sisters, and 20 other relatives who are also chiropractors. His sister Dr. Kathleen Doohen practices in Ankeny and his sister, Dr. Khristi and her husband, Dr. Ken Otto, both practice in Appleton, Wis. Eventually, as his parents near retirement, Kennedy will take on the practice.
Dr. Dan Kennedy offers total spine chiropractic care along with diet and nutrition assistance. He is well qualified to take care of patients ranging in age from infants to geriatrics.
Dr. Dan Kennedy is excited about being home in Cherokee and providing the best possible chiropractic care for his patients.
